Re: System won't boot, nothing on screen
It does have a video card sound to it... As you had the crazy screen.
For trouble shooting,
As its not booting at all, I would run it bare minumum, Mobo out of the case on cardboard, 1 stick of ram, gpu, and of coarse power supply. Plug that stuff in and vtry to gegt to the bios.
After that, you're at a point where you need to switch components in and out.
Got any really nice freinds? A cheap/lowend components is all you need to test it out.
Btw, a 1000W psu is abit overkill, especially a corsair, so if you can get ahold of even a decent 600W to try it out, it'll be fine.
Good luck, seems you've had a beast of a time building.
And saddly, welcome to TF. Hope we can help.
